The Top 7 Germiest Places in Your Home!

Those of you who have been here with me on the blog for a while have probably figured out by now that I’m a bit of a germ-a-phoebe. Sorry. It is what it is, and believe me, I’m much more relaxed about it than I used to be! The reason I’m still pretty on guard, though, is because I have Celiac’s disease, which is an autoimmune disorder. That means my immune system is more likely to attack itself than attack whatever germ gets in my body. So I like to be extra careful!

Now, anyone who walks into my home right now would label it clean. It really doesn’t matter if we’re hosting a party or a dinner, or we’re just there by ourselves, both my husband and I HATE clutter. So you won’t find hardly any of that at our house. You also won’t find much dust, because I dust often, due to our allergies. And you won’t find dirty floors, either, because I can’t STAND to walk around on our tile and wood floors and my feet get dirty! (Not to mention the hairs of the small black furry creature who lives with us that I’m constantly vacuuming up!)

But I got to thinking the other day, after my hubby came down with a nasty yucky that gave him a 102 fever and an awful cough, I’m SURE there are places in our home that could have the potential to make us sick anyways. So I did a little research. Let’s take a tour of my house and see what I found!

1. The #1 germiest place in my home is…are you ready for this? My KITCHEN sink!!! (And my faucet and garbage disposal)

My Perplexing Planner Predicament


How’s THAT for alliteration? (Took me a bit to come up with it, but it describes how I’m feeling perfectly!)

Do you happen to recall the post I did a while back on calendars? (HERE IT IS, in case you want to revisit it.) I basically talked about my calendar system: what I use, how I sync everything and how I keep it all organized. It was working beautifully. WAS would be the key word.

Organize Your Desktop…with a Background Image?

I always thought my desktop was pretty organized. If I’m in the middle of working on a project, it gets a little full of folders and files, but I always group them together for easy locating, and as soon as I’ve completed them, they get moved to the appropriate file – either on my computer or on my portable hard drive. On top of that, I always keep a nice background image up for inspiration, almost always from interfacelift. That’s organized, right?

Until I saw THIS!
